Samantha will be securing relationships with key corporate customers for Pixago's multiple products and services. Using her unique knowledge of the Interactive Television market, Samantha will be developing industry alliances for Pixago. She will also develop the corporate and product strategy extending Pixago's successful web delivery strategy into the iTV and wireless market. Whilst project manager for BBC FutureWorld, Samantha gained a strong understanding of digital television and convergence in the technology environment. Prior to this, Samantha worked in film distribution for United International Pictures. To enhance Pixago's position in the digital environment as a simple technology business model, Samantha will focus on bringing an easy-to-use multimedia content management system to market. Commenting on her appointment, Samantha said: "At such an exciting time in the digital marketplace, I am delighted to be onboard with Pixago. The company's environment is refreshingly honest and delivers without all the current hype." Pixago's CEO, Richard Bennett said: "Samantha's knowledge and contacts will enable her to deliver Pixago's second generation of software, empowering our customers to broadcast their media assets not only on the Internet, but also on wireless and iTV platforms." Unsurprisingly, Australian-born Samantha is a keen sportswoman outside of work, enjoying snowboarding, surfing and horse riding as often as she can. ends About Pixago Pixago is a digital archive and media distribution house aiming to help companies realise the potential for using digital media and making the most of media assets they already possess. Simply put, Pixago creates digital media archives from companies existing audio and video assets. The contents of these archives can be streamed from Pixago's industrial-strength servers across any current or future platform, such as broadband Internet, third generation (3G) mobile networks and interactive television. Pixago has structured its service to be as inclusive as possible, enabling companies and organisations of every size to take advantage of the medium. The nature of its service also makes it very easy for companies to control the distribution and the tracking of their digital media, whether as an internal resource available over the Internet or a new revenue stream. For many companies, the cost and complexity involved in digitising, encoding and managing media assets are major barriers to streaming digital media on their websites and extranet systems. Pixago's service side-steps these infrastructure issues by hosting the digital content on its media servers, allowing media clips to be streamed directly to the end-user's system. These appear to the user as if they were directly accessed from the original website.
